New search function in Runbox 6

We have now replaced the search function in Runbox 6 with an improved version that is based on the groundbreaking search feature we have developed for Runbox 7.

You will find the new search area at the top of the message list when clicking Search in the Webmail menu.

The new search function will show results while you type into the search field, so there is no need to manually click on a Search button.

Note that in Runbox 7 the search function is dramatically faster and returns results instantaneously thanks to its innovative search index synchronization. Runbox 7 also introduces many new features such as infinite message listing, inline message previews, threaded conversation view, and a mobile app version. Give it a test drive!

Search options

By clicking on the wrench icon to the right, the following options will be shown:

  • to: Search by recipient address
  • from: Search by sender address
  • subject: Search by subject line
  • current folder: Limit search to the current folder
  • year/month/date: Shows a calendar where you can select a time frame

Selecting an option will insert an example into the search field which you can then modify.

You can also just type these operators directly into the the search field and you can can combine them with the AND operator, like: folder:Inbox AND subject:something

More information can be found on our Help pages.

New message search in Beta

We’re happy to announce that the long-awaited full message search function is now available in closed Beta test, so let us know if you’d like to try searching ALL your Runbox email and we’ll enable it for you!

UPDATE: You can now enable the new search function by using one of these links:

RMM5: https://beta.runbox.com/mail?enable_new_search=1
Runbox6: https://runbox.com/mail?enable_new_search=1

If you happen to have a lot of messages in your account that you do not need indexed (such as spam), we recommend that you delete them first to speed up the initial indexing.

UPDATE 2: We’ve had some problems creating search indices, and are working to straighten these out. If you don’t get the new search field within a reasonable time after clicking the above link, please try again in a while.
